In which I am confused about exim

I'm trying to configure an exim4 server under Ubuntu, but this is happening:

$ /usr/sbin/exim -bh 127.0.0.1

**** SMTP testing session as if from host 127.0.0.1
**** but without any ident (RFC 1413) callback.
**** This is not for real!

>>> host in hosts_connection_nolog? no (option unset)
>>> host in host_lookup? yes (matched "*")
>>> looking up host name for 127.0.0.1
>>> IP address lookup yielded localhost
>>> gethostbyname2 looked up these IP addresses:
>>>   name=localhost address=::1
>>>   name=localhost address=127.0.0.1
>>> checking addresses for localhost
>>>   ::1
>>>   127.0.0.1 OK

AUTH is broken

Why on earth does it say the host is in auth_advertise_hosts but not return AUTH in the EHLO response? Someone, please throw me a clue here.
